Bridgnorth Walk for Ukraine

Walk for Ukraine

Bridgnorth Walk for Ukraine

The Bridgnorth Walk and Marathon will be set as a Bridgnorth Walk for Ukraine this year.

You can support any Charity you like but it is encouraged to walk for the Innocent victims of Ukraine this Year in light of all the problems they are facing.

If you are looking for something to motivate you to tackle the course for a first time (or the umpteenth time) then surely this must be it.

This year, for the first time ever, they will include a metric marathon for those who can’t quite manage a full marathon but 10K is not enough. They are also including a metric walk as well for those who might find the normal Bridgnorth Walk a bit too much of a challenge.

Lions Pub Cup

The Lions are also looking to involve pubs in the town in a ‘Lions Pub Cup’ which would see each venue compete for the best time in the walk, with a medal or certificate awarded to the winning pub.

“As in previous years, we will welcome competitors of all ages and levels by offering different routes. No matter what their ability, participants can expect to enjoy a truly wonderful community event.

IMPERIAL MARATHON AND METRIC MARATHON

The 26.66 mile route has both on and off-road sections with the route climbing from 233ft to 1739ft above sea level, incurring an overall accent of 3133ft. The on-road section from Bridgnorth to the Brown Clee Hill and back accounts for just over 19 miles.  However, the toughest part is the Brown Clee Hill section. On forest trails, steep banks and stony tracks, the route loops round Shropshire’s highest hill before the undulating return to Bridgnorth.

The route experiences many elevation changes challenging the fittest runners. Runners should not underestimate the seriousness of the challenge.

The fee for our Imperial Marathon Runners is £35.00, which not only provides a contribution to the cost of staging the event but also towards Lions’ charity funds.

The Metric Marathon is 25.86 Kilometres and is nearly all on road. It takes in some of the best parts of the marathon route without the rigours of Brown Clee Hill and the off road demanding section.

With a total ascent of 1361 feet, it is a perfect challenge for anyone who wants a good and testing warm-up for future marathons.

Both event starts at 9:30am from Bridgnorth High St (half an hour earlier than walkers). Water Stations every mile will be on hand.


SENIOR WALK AND SHORTER METRIC MARATHON WALK

An estimated 20,000 walkers of all ages, shapes and sizes have walked this event since the beginning. The minimum age to walk is 15…while many participants are well into their seventies or even eighties !

The full course (including the route up Brown Clee) is 21.5 miles (34.7 km). The event starts at 10.00 am in Bridgnorth High St.

Walkers have the option of not going to the Brown Clee summit, reducing the mileage to 19.8 miles (31.86 km) although those under 50 who miss out the climb would not be able to win one of the prizes.

The shorter Metric Marathon walk is 25.86 Kilometres and is nearly all on road. It takes in some of the best parts of the marathon route without the rigours of Brown Clee Hill and the off road demanding section.

The fee for both groups is £17.50 (Non-Refundable) which provides a contribution to not only the expenses of running the event but also towards Lions charity funds.

To register on the day will cost £20.00.


JUNIOR WALK

This is a very popular event for children aged between 9 and 14 years (on the day of the event). The 7.06 mile (11.36 km) route starts at 
12pm at Ditton Priors Village Hall.

The route takes the Juniors to the very top of the Brown Clee, a very steep climb of 1230 feet (375 metres). Accompanied by Cycle Outriders and with a water station every mile, this is a safe but very strenuous event.

Entrance fee is £7. Parents, other family members and friends are welcome to cheer the children at the start and welcome them back at the finish at approximately 13.00.


FAMILY WALK

Beginning at 12.15 the route starts and finishes at Ditton Priors and follows that of the Junior Walk without the more strenuous stretch to the top of Brown Clee. 

With water stations at every mile there is every opportunity to stretch your legs and enjoy a real family day out. However, the off-road path at the start of the Brown Clee section is unfortunately not suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs but a short diversion is available which follows a slightly shorter route along the country lane.  

The cost for up to six in a family group will be £17.00


SPONSORED WALK TEAMS

Do the Senior Walk and/or the Junior Walk as part of a team. Be it a company, charity, pub or group of friends.

Teams should be of 2 or more walkers (this can be a combination of Senior and Junior entrants) raising money for your team nominated charity or organisation.

Each team needs a team leader who is the single point of contact with the walk organisers and distributes walk numbers and the rules to their team.

To set up the team, the team leader should create the team using the REGISTER A TEAM button.
